record, lying about obama, republicans and democrats this election agreed on one thing. no one could say for sure what' romney was on on any specific point. if he had been a starter candidate, he might have won. if the republican party had a slicker version, more human version of romney, alessa beta version, they might have gone further and won. that was lucky for the democrats. tavis: you have given me a wonderful segue which is now what the future of the gop is. what kind of person into the future, i have -- do they have to put up given the demographic shifts in this country? >> they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. their first impulse is marco rubio for president because we need latinos and he is a cuban- american. that put him up there. i think they're going to have to realize that if they really want to be effective they're going to have to change some policies. they cannot find biffar managers with it -- with existing policies. there will have to cling to and believe in their small government believes and what they will do is try to find ways to put a kind

, first high-profile political stand of the obama second term should be republicans blocking this person's promotions to potentially be secretary of state. the president may nominate u.n. ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. and already, republicans in the senate led by john mccain are threatening to block her nomination. he called her today "not too bright" and said she's unqualified for the position. yes, the republicans have a demographics problem in the house and the senate and nationwide. but it is not just a demographics problem. it's never just a demographics problem, right? and there is a decision to make now for the republicans, about whether the whiter, ever-more-male party who just lost the election badly in the senate is now going to work its butt off in the senate to block the nomination of this african-american women secretary of state nominee, whose crazy uncles who watch fox news told them the attack in benghazi wasn't an attack, it was a conspiracy. the person i most want to ask about that dynamic in washington right now is probably nan

obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan, with this whole game, with all the cards out in the open and on the table. you know what, think about this. the president could have said, you know, i don't want to do that. i think i'm going to cave in today. he don't have to worry about anything. he's not up f

. and then in the next election, 2008, barack obama got elected and the republicans lost even more seats in the house and in the senate. and with george w. bush long gone and john mccain beaten really badly and with the republicans reduced to minorities this small in congress, there was a really pressing question. after the '08 election, after the last presidential election, of how and whether the republican party would be able to rebuild itself. and obviously, they did, right? they did great in the 2010 elections, even after doing pretty badly in this current election, they still hold on to the house. but starting to feel like those segments that we did on this show after the '08 presidential election, those segments, gop in compile, it seems like they're still relevant to understanding what the republican party is now going through. my favorite part, we did these animations to make visual metaphors out of the republican party's sad lossness. those were kind of great. ♪ one is the loneliest number that you'll ever know ♪ ♪ you can go your own way ♪ go your own way ♪ don't ask how ♪ as co
obama rebukes republican senators for their rights. but did our president point the finger at himself? and finally do men have standards when it comes to hitting on hot women? we discovered illiteracy and just plain weirdness sometimes aren't enough to deter men on a mission. >> thanks, jedediah. let's welcome our guests. i am here with fox news network reporter sandra smith. imus in the morning executive producer so he claims. i have never seen him do anything. bill schulz, do you think he just broke up with justin bieber? and sitting next to me is penn jaw let. he hosts a pod cast called penn sunday school that you can find at pep sunday school.com. and if that is thought enough, which i think it is not, his book came out to compete with greg. >> were the e-mails flirty or just friendly? our national security hangs in the balance. he is on hold as investigators pour over the 20,000 documents and hundreds of messages that equaled to an inappropriate communication with tampa socialite jill kelley. allen, the top nato commander in afghanistan, quote, used terms of endearment, but not i
, president obama included, get more political capital by winning political fights. and that's not to say that susan rice would be a huge political fight. it seem obvious that there are some republicans who have real political motivations, who are involved in it right now. but, you know, obviously john kerry would be a great candidate. susan rice would be a great candidate. but what the president said today was, if i choose susan rice, it's because i think she's the most qualified person for the job, and i'm not going to let your bs stand in the way of me nominating her for that. >> in terms of the tone that we're hearing from the president here, i am not one of those people who believes in like following body language as opposed to following policy fights, but it is striking that we saw the president at that debate with mitt romney, where it quickly spiralled into the false fact check and the please proceed and everything. we saw the president at that debate and we saw the president again today sort of bring the room to a halt, stop everybody, and look really pissed. i have not seen that
political, highly partisan. even personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator john mccain, who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states, for two weeks afterwards, to deny that that was the case, is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. acting cia director mike morerel on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> that this was a spontaneous protest that involved something militant. that was the best information. they said they had at the time. >> reporter: there had been earlier attacks in benghazi. house republicans hammered the administration reaction. >> the people back here in washington continue to deny additional security. and they continued to do away with security that was already there. >> reporter: democrats pushed back. >> to lay this at the doorstep of the president

point. yesterday president obama in his first news conference since re-election exploded at republican finger pointing over rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me, but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> earlier sense tore mccain and graham vowed to stop her confirmation. >> i don't trust her. the reason i don't trust her. is i think she knew better. >> we will do whatever is necessary to stop the nomination. >>> back to petraeus. t"the wall street journal" says he was already at odds with james clapper after the cia wanted them to fight back publicly for its role in benghazi. we do have new details on the personal scandal that has enveloped petraeus and john allen from nbc's andrea mitchell who broke the story. >> reporter: at his news conference the president went out of his way to praise petraeus. >> he has provided this country an extraordinary s
that happen. >> president obama continues to demand house republicans pass a bill extending the tax cuts. wouldn't that be good for the economy? the president is open for compromise but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck section of congress. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of kind of raise revenue through dynamic store and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from you-from-now the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tabs, boys. this is what president obama ran against notice presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was trust me. the american public wanted specifics and president obama continued to give specifics today but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier in the day here's another development. a

? because the american people have now chosen barack obama over the republican guy. so what do they do? they have to gin up a conspiracy, a scandal of some sort, something they can attach the word gate to. now it's benghazi-gate. >> ron, you got it. this is the big alternative universal view of their world view in which you don't know what color the sky is over there. but they believe that this is as big as watergate and although nixon got re-elected in '72, he will come down by '74 even though this guy won in '12, he will come down by '14 because of this big gate ron mentioned. they have it in their head this is big time. >> in 1997 after bill clinton got re-elected but before lewinsky, the republicans tried to do the same thing on chinese fund-raising. remember that? they spent the better part of a year trying to turn this into a huge scandal. there is a little more to that one than there is to this. this is just exploiting a tragedy for political purposes. >> and here is the great irony. john mccain, who seems like he's the big whistle-blower, going after susan rice yesterday. compa
